Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors do an excellent job of breaking down the complex underlying technologies of SPS into easily digestible language and real-world examples that can be understood by most anyone involved with an organization’s SPS 2003 implementation. This book will prove to be an invaluable technology and best practices resource for anyone planning a SPS 2003 deployment, from the most basic team site to a complex multi-tiered enterprise rollout. Not only do the authors detail the critical technology components of SPS 2003 at each stage of the project lifecycle from planning, to deployment, to sustainment, they also draw attention to the business value that can be derived from these technologies." —Michael Topalovich, Group Manager,
Application Management Services, Siebel Systems, Inc.

"SharePoint, a collaboration service built on various Microsoft technologies where each technology requires a certain level of expertise. The authors have provided their insight into implementing SharePoint services effectively and properly for my 'quick win'. Moving beyond the basics? The authors own experiences can assist you in creating a truly remarkable site." —Gary Adams, Manager, Infrastructure Services –
Systems & Messaging, Legislative Data Center,
State of California

    SharePoint products have come together to produce a more tightly integrated and richer platform, upon which successful collaboration and information sharing can occur. Authors Kevin Laahs, Emer McKenna and Veli-Matti Vanamo have done an outstanding job in this book of covering almost every single aspect of SharePoint. Laahs, McKenna and Vanamo begin this book by looking at the architecture of Windows SharePoint Services (WSS). In addition, the authors look at how a WSS site is used for the purpose of supporting multi author document collaboration. They also take a look at the architecture of SharePont Portable Server (SPS) and the key features that it brings to the collaboration landscape. Then, they focus on site personalization, delivered by WSS profiles, delivered personal sites, delivered by SPS audience targeting, delivered by SPS and, IM integration, delivered by Office 2003 and Messenger. The authors then look at the major components of search and how they can affect the features available to end users. Next, they introduce you to software and hardware architecture concepts that you should familiarize yourself with. Then, they take a brief look at the core server products you may want to integrate with your deployment and then focus on planning the features you can enable for SharePoint Products and Technologies. The authors continue by delving further into capacity and hardware planning for SharePoint Products and Technologies. Next, they cover the major aspects of deploying SharePoint Products and Technologies and walk you through a few example installation scenarios for both products. In addition, they cover some of the typical migration scenarios and tools available for you to perform them. The authors then look briefly at the architectures of both SPS 2001 and STS and how they evolved into the current SharePoint platform. Next, they examine the concept of Web Parts and Web Part Pages and where they fit into the overall SharePoint architecture. They then continue to expand upon the topic of deployment and explain the security framework surrounding Web Parts. In addition, the authors focus on the aspects of FrontPage and SharePoint integration that have the most impact. Finally, they take a look at some of the more advanced methods of customizing and extending your SharePoint implementation. With the preceding in mind, the authors have done an excellent job of providing you with the basic knowledge and tools to begin applying the common customizations applicable to many organizations. Obviously, your requirements may be more specialized and require additional knowledge beyond what they were able to provide.
